Default My flies!

I haven't really tied for about 10 years and I've never really done anything other then simple trout flies.s

This week I decided to tie some bigger streamers. Here is a look at a few. Let me know your thoughts.

Hi arkman,

When you tie Clouser style flies there is one important feature. That is the flash along the center line. According to Bob Clouser the flash should extend along the center line on both sides and is the longest part of the fly. Also notice that the flash has a darker background to accent the flash in some flies.

Your flies look good and should catch fish.
